SIOUX CITY, Iowa — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has asked Iowa transportation officials for permission to build a temporary memorial tombstone that they say will honor hundreds of turkeys killed in a recent truck crash.

Ankeny resident and PETA member Alex Moore says in a letter dated Tuesday that he wants to erect the 10-foot structure in remembrance of more than 500 turkeys killed in a crash April 12 in Sioux City. The truck transporting the animals overturned.

The truck was almost certainly bound for the poultry slaughter facility. So all the crash did was speed the Reaper. Why should turkeys killed in an accident be “honored” any more than the millions of their cousins who go to the slaughterhouse unremarked every day?

I suspect the rednecks in Sioux City will have a field day if this “monument” is built.

In Japanese, the word for turkey is 七面鳥 shichimenchou, literally "seven-face bird," because of the way the bird's face and neck change color. It's also a reference to 七面花, "seven-face flower," which is a kind of country-Japanese dialect word for hydrangea.

They need to post some banners up saying, “We will miss you all... Butterballs!”

Cool. PUt a TON of birdseed and worms at the bottom and the thing will end up covered in bird poop in 24 hours.

I call that “winning”!

People in Sioux City can’t spell that well. But I’m sure they can muster some cruder sentiments.

“”Why should turkeys killed in an accident be “honored”””

You have to think like a PETA member.
Thats so the turkey’s families can have a place to come and mourn.

How about a tombstone for the cattle cruelly shot and killed by the BLM in Nevada or the desert tortoises similarly “euthanized”.

I wonder if we could put up a memorial plaque for all the stray cats and dogs euthanized by PeTA.

Oh, wait, we can’t. Because PeTA made sure to use a mobile death van to do the deeds.

Why doesn’t PETA declare war on aborted babies being burned in incinerators? Aren’t babies just as valuable as animals? We are no better than the CANAANITES that burned their babies at the foot of BAAL. There will be a price to pay for all of these transgression.

PETA never has to leave the apartment, all they do is release a statement saying something outrageous, like they want to use human babies to build a monument for suffering fleas killed by chemicals, and everyone reports it as an actual plan of action being performed, and then PETA collects all the donations in the mail.

I sure hope they get permission. It'll show how absolutely stupid they are. How's about chipmunks and squirrels next? And then all the ants we step on each day? And then the flies caught in flytraps?

Or, hey, by the way, howzabout' a statue for the 3,300 unborn and newly born humans that are slaughtered every day in American abortuaries? Huh? Can't wait to see if they'll rustle up some money for even one day's worth of the murdered babies.

These jackasses are like a rash ya' can't reach.

Where is that, and who is the artist? That is excellent use of mixed media to convey the heart of the message.

Iowa should let these imbeciles do this. It will only lead to ridicule and ostracism both to the local jackoffs in PETA, but to the national organization and to ‘animal rights’ in general. Thanks Up Yours Marxists.
